A Thousand Miles up the Nile




Librivox recording of A Thousand Miles up the Nile, by Amelia B. Edwards.

Amelia B. Edwards wrote this historical, egyptological, and cultural study in in 1877, and it became an immediate best-seller, reprinted in 1888 at home in England and abroad. She travelled throughout Egypt at a time when most women didn't leave home. One of the pioneering Egyptologists of the age, she established the Edwards Chair of Egyptology, occupied first by the great Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie.

This book is in a sense a seminal work, known to have influenced the modern writings of Elizabeth Peters in her Amelia Peabody Emerson murder-mystery series.

Subject: Are these people sociopaths?
Seriously, the way these people behave toward the Arabs is just amazing...the bit where the baby is shot demonstrates just extraordinary lack of empathy.

A great book about Victorian tourists in Egypt. Their cluelessness is shocking. *)
